Here’s a little video that I made (with considerable help from Cristina at The Distillery) after my recent trip to Kauai and the Big Island of Hawaii.

As much as anything else, this was a chance for me to practice with inserts and graphics while editing. So much to learn!

Enjoy and look out for a guest appearance from Magnum PI (well, sort of).

Seeing the Northern Lights – the Aurora Borealis – is pretty bucket listy for most people. And with good reason. The time I saw them in Norway ten years ago I promptly burst into tears!

I just got back from Fairbanks, Alaska to cover the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics. Yes – it’s a thing!

Thanks to the folks at WatchDent who took some of my video content and turned it into this two-minute work of art. Enjoy…

I love open water swimming and was lucky enough to spend time in Zurich last summer during a heatwave, checking out the city’s many public outdoor pools, or badis as they’re known.

It’s been twenty years since the handover of Hong Kong from Britain to China. I was there that night in June 1997 and, though the evening was boozy and rainy, I remember it pretty well … as told in last Saturday’s Times, when I updated my thoughts on my favourite Asian city after returning there earlier this year.
